COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tavern Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale. It is a medium to full-bodied beer with a hoppy aroma. Tavern Ale is served unfiltered resulting in a hazy or cloudy appearance. It has a full malt finish with a well rounded bitterness. Tavern Ale is an American Pale Ale because of the large amounts of American hops which lends a distinct, almost citrusy flavor to the beer. Therefore, our Tavern Ales is quite different from the "spicy" or "herby" flavor of European hops.

Draft, Ram’s Head Rehoboth. Pours a clear, orangish-copper color; white head with good retention and lacing. Pleasant floral hop and candy sugar aroma. Medium mouthfeel: lively carbonation, decent floral hop and citrus bitterness; slightly soapy and hints of a plasticy note that doesn’t detract much. Medium, chalky and dry floral hops on the finish.

On Tap-Poured a clear amber color w/almost no head. Somewhat hoppy floral aroma. Definate hop flavor up front which was just too strong. Kind of rough, bitter, metalic finish. You could drink it, but why bother. Ordered a Yuengling for my second one & was much happier!!

Man, this dog’s got some bite. Quite the hoppy brew, almost too much for an American Pale ale, still, it wasn’t bad either. I like Fordham beers. This one was kind of bitey for a concert type affair, but wasn’t lifeless either.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Draft - A hoppy West Coast version of the style. Served a bit flat, and a tad too cold. Otherwise quite good.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Savage Mill location - Hazy orange, lasting creamy off white head. Very soft aromas of citric fruit rinds and caramel. Well bittered flavors up front with citrus hops following through from start to finish. Medium bodied, pillow soft carbonation, bitter finish. Way too one dimensional (at least this batch) for an APA. IMO, more malt would do absolute wonders here...
